Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it features several build site options, onsite electricity, and a running brook from Crystal Pond flows directly through the property.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would begin this project by selecting two building locations. The first for the primary dwelling and the second for the accessory dwelling. The primary dwelling would be located near the front of the property and would require clearing for a driveway and building site. The accessory dwelling unit would be accessible by a newly established trail and located near the seasonal stream. This unit could be used for studio space or possibly a weekend rental income source. The ADU could be off grid for a more rustic experience or tied to traditional utilities like the primary residence.


The town of Becket is beloved by fishermen and was known in the 1940's for having one of the five best trout streams in the Berkshires. The West Branch of the Westfield River, which forms part of the northern boundary of Becket, was known for the brooks, browns and rainbow trout stocked there.
